Pros

Employee discount, meet many great co workers, good scheduling, "have fun while being the best", easier to move up within company.

Cons

Managers micro manage a bit too much, managers care more about numbers than their employees happiness while at work, all employees are biased towards the products they like

Advice to Management

Do not micro manage the sales floor, at least pretend to have an interest in your employees happiness and life.

  1. It was very mixed. Some parts were great, others I'd rather not deal with.

    Pros

    You get a great discount on most products, I made friends with most people in the store and some that I would even call family, Willing to work with reasonable schedules

    Cons

    Only chances for a raise is at yearly review or if changing positions, There is a lot that is expected of you and only a little compensation for it. Holidays are really bad. And it's retail so you are going to have to put up with ignorant people on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Changes the pay structure need to be addressed and implemented. It doesn't make sense to work extremely hard (being the best at attaching geek squad services in the entire store) for an entire year just to be given the smallest of a raise in return.
